§ Sir D. Kaberry
asked the Minister of Transport what progress he has made in his negotiations with the Leeds Corporation for the improvement of street lighting on the Leeds-Otley trunk road from the double track road at Lawnswood to 32W the Leeds City boundary on the northwest; and what request was received from the Leeds City Council for a grant towards the cost of the improvement of the street lighting, as offered in his reply to the hon. Member for Leeds, North-West, on 20th February, 1963.
§ Mr. Marples
The Leeds City Council asked for a 50 per cent. contribution towards the cost of a lighting scheme on the Leeds-Otley trunk road (A.660) from its junction with A.6120 to a point 200 feet north of Kingsley Drive. This has received my preliminary approval and tenders for the necessary equipment have been received. As soon as the design of the lighting columns which the Council wishes to erect has been approved by the Council of Industrial Design, work can proceed.
